Functional & Sustainable
We design furniture and products that fit the modern day living space and environment. Designs that solve problems and make life easier.
600SQ is a multidisciplinary design studio focusing on product design, fabrication and communication.
Our research and products began with how people in urban areas use furniture, what expectations they have for it, what’s their lifestyle and what kind of spaces they inhabit. The research gave us a better understanding of what kind of furniture is actually needed.
We believe design should solve problems and not create them. Focusing on human centered approach we research challenges of living in urban environments and design solutions around people and their needs. We are big on functionality, usability and sustainability of our products while using aesthetics as the unifying force.
